I think you're too late, you've already caught something, mate. But never mind, you're in good company...some of the greatest geniuses from history were mad...Tongue

This is excellent Dave, have an award for being brave enough to get your nose within twelve feet of my discarded apres curry pants!

Er, okaaaaay ... Weird? Yes, very. Kinky? Probably, depending on your mindset.

But ... as well as phenomenal camera skills, I think I maybe see this differently. Remembrance. Missing someone so badly who's no longer here. Wanting to touch and be close to that person, but not being able to. Wanting time to go backwards and erase the pain. Sometimes, smells evoke such strong memories that it can unhinge people (although you're unhinged to start with, Dave, so maybe that bit doesn't count Grin).

So while it's all the 'dodgy' things that the mind can dredge up, there's also a subtle underlying meaning here that you may not have intended at all!

And I ain't saying anything about the other Dave's pants ...

My sentiments are the same as Tanyas' comment above, I totally agree with her.
Depends so much on how peeps look at this, a little teardrop may well change the whole thing.
You really are quite a good actor Dave Wink

Lol Moira, you just have to love that video Smile

A funny photo Leo and taking my kinkiness to the next level ...... sniffing knickers while they’re still being worn Wink

Thanks guys for your comments and interesting to read your thoughts Tanya. I hadn't intended any such associations but I agree that smells (and sounds) can be powerful triggers to remembering events and people from the past.

It kind of reminds me of the time, years the laundromat someone stole all my panties, my favourites too. I was p-----ed right off. But after getting that out of my mind...I see a tortured man who has just lost the love of his life. He's thinking of jumping in front of one of those cars.
